Wagman Demonstrates Support for National Work Zone Safety
(York, PA) Wagman Companies demonstrated their support for the 16th Annual National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week in March and continued efforts into April. Wagman employees were encouraged to “go orange” for the day on Wednesday, March 25th to help raise awareness and bring national attention to motorist and work zone safety. Jobsite personnel were encouraged to send photos of daily safety activities which include “Stretch & Flex” and “Safety Huddles”, where they discuss potential work zone safety hazards before they start their day.
“Safety is a priority each and every day,” said Lisa Wagman Glezer, Vice President of Communications. “Our crews discuss risks within work zones as part of their morning routine. We have established a culture of safety at Wagman and it was great to have our offices and jobsites participating and sharing photos to demonstrate support for National Work Zone Awareness.”
The 2015 National Work Zone Awareness Week was themed “Expect the Unexpected” and ran March 23 – 27. Each year since its start, the Federal Highway Administration has worked with other organizations, including the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and the American Traffic Safety Services Association, to organize the event on a national level. Many states also host their own events in conjunction with national awareness events. In Virginia, where Wagman operates out of two offices, the state hosted the 2015 national event and a memorial vigil. Wagman, on behalf of the Virginia Transportation Construction Alliance, also sponsored a Work Zone Awareness Display at the I-95 Welcome Center at Mile Post 1. The Maryland Transportation Builders and Materials Association (MTBMA) coordinated a campaign throughout the month of April since the Governor declared April Safety Awareness Month.
